Meta-Heuristics, Differential Evolution Algorithm, Unconstrained Problems


Nowadays, the meta-heuristic methods are powerful for various aspects including transportation and production planning. This study presents efficiency of Differential evolution (DE) and Hybridization differential evolution (HDE) for solving continuous unconstrained problems and machining problems. The results show that HDE is better than DE in terms of the mean, standard deviation and data distribution.
